Ask the Tailor: How Should I Care for My Suit?
Photo by Michael

Each month we ask our expert tailors to address one of your most frequent questions. This month we’re exploring the issue of how you should care for your suit.

A bespoke tailored suit is an important investment. It’s a clear sign, both to yourself and the people around you, that you believe you’re worth it. 

Of course, once you’ve made such an important investment you’ll want to make sure you look after it. A well cared for suit will serve you faithfully for many years...

A Day in the Life of a Suit Tailor


In suit appointments I'm often asked where do you visit the most, what areas of London, what industries?

So I thought I'd write this short article describing a typical suit tailoring day I experience in London to give a flavour of what it's like and who else buys bespoke suits from Mullen & Mullen.

As the black sheep of the family business, I live in London and commute up to York. Dominic, Damien and Catriona live in York and commute down to London. My day usually starts with an 8:30 or 9AM appointment and our most commonly visited...

The 3rd Annual Mullen and Mullen Golf Day


So they arrived, some young, some not so young, in all shapes and sizes (as befits a bespoke tailoring company's golf day); some in hope, some in expectation, some in trepidation and some in awful trousers, to be met with bacon sandwiches and hot drinks to calm the nerves. 

The weather was glorious, the banter less so, as desperate men, and a couple of brave ladies, got their excuses in before they even arrived at the first tee:

"...I haven't touched a golf club since last year...."

"...I'm not really a warm-weather...

How to Wear Statement Socks with a Suit
Statement Socks with Shoes

Socks. The most practical, safe and boring choice of Father's Day, birthday and Christmas gift for decades.

But in a world dominated by monochromatic menswear, socks don't have to be boring. Indeed, the 'shock sock' is the ideal rebellion against grayscale tyranny and the ideal opportunity to show your personality and style. Whether geometric, striped, dotted or bright, socks are no longer the boring backdrop of your shoes.

Socks are in.

Socks are the new tie.

Whereas the tie, previous home of personal style...

The Secrets of Body Language: Why You Should Never Wear a Bad Suit
Man comically too small for his suit

When you wear a suit your posture changes. Depending on the quality of fit, the suit may pull on the back of your neck, shoulders or waist, restricting movement and distorting your natural posture. This negatively impacts your body language. Harvard Business School Professor Amy Cuddy highlights its importance:

"Our non-verbals govern how other people think and feel about us". 

But why is posture so important? A recent post by Leo Widrich highlighted a TED talk by Cuddy that explains the...

Expert: Fused versus Floating Canvas
Fused versus Floating Canvas

The canvassing or padding to be found in a suit jacket may not be visible on first glance, but it plays a vital role in producing the desired look and feel of a jacket.

With all ready-to-wear suits, you'll find a fused canvas within. Fused canvassing is a recent development that came along with mass manufacture and uses an inferior quality material that is firmly attached to the fabric. This leads to a much more rigid feel and a sensation that you are wrestling against your jacket, rather...
